Shopping for a baby shower can be a dreadful task if you are not exactly sure what they need. Having three children myself, I have put together a list of what I would consider thoughtful gifts, for mom and baby.
Note: Most of these (or similar) products are available on Amazon, just click on one of the many Amazon links on the homepage to be redirected 🙂
Tip: Always leave the price tag on the present. You can black out the actual price, but leave the tag so that the mommy to be can exchange the gift in case somebody else had the same awesome present idea as you.
Presents for mom:
Postpartum Abdominal Binder – This is an awesome gift, it helps the body heal after birth. The main purpose of the Goodbye Belly Wrap is to push the muscles back together to encourage reattachment while gently pushing the stretched skin back against the underlining tissue, it also encourages a better posture and gives back support during breastfeeding. I found this extremely helpful with pain relief after my c-section. You can get one at https://goodbyebelly.co.za/ .
NutriBullet Baby Bullet – Every mom wants to feed her kid healthy fruits, vegetables, and other foods in a short amount of time. This is quite a nifty tool to make that happen!
I just had to put this here. This to me is the most thoughtful gift! Turning babies first recorded heartbeat into jewelry…… you might need help in getting your hand on the ultrasound picture but this is so worth it!!!
Presents for Baby
Tip: Try to avoid purchasing soaps, creams and bath products as a baby with a sensitive skin might not be able to use the products you spend a fortune on because lets be honest – baby toiletries are not cheap!
Pillow wedges….can`t imagine going without them! These helps baby feels safe and secure all night! Most of these products also has curved sides supporting both back and side sleeping.
Tip: Avoid buying bottles and pacifiers. You get so many different brands, and some babies actually only feed with certain shaped bottle teats and pacifiers.
Muslin Swaddles – designed to envelop babies in a gentle, warm environment, similar to that of the womb. The fabric even becomes softer with every wash.
Tip: If you are buying clothing remember to check for what season it is by the time the baby will be wearing them 😉
Taglet Comfy Blankets are not only cute, they actually do entertain babies and provide comfort when they are in the crib.
Because they are cute, fluffy and really handy as a night light!
Suction Bowls…..need I say more 🙂
Crawling Knee Pads….to protect the little one`s soft knees while he is exploring the world 🙂
The Safe Route
Shop for a few cute outfits….maybe some toys and give a gift certificate..this is probably one of the most thoughtful gifts you can give! This allows the mom to be to first of all buy what she needs, and allows her to choose which brands and makes of accessories she wants to use 🙂
These are just a few of my personal favorites…. 🙂 Hope it helps!
